  • Artist: Trey Songz
  • Track: Successful [Album Version]
  • Feat. Drake
  • Producer: 40
  • Album: Ready

One of the most acclaimed tracks off Drake's smash hit So Far Gone mixtape, Successful has inspired numerous freestyles (including Young Son's Booth-exclusive I Just Wanna Be...), and was ultimately chosen as the follow-up to lead single Best I Ever Had.  Collaborator Trey Songz clearly appreciates the record's appeal; he's snapped it up for inclusion on his junior album, even giving it the music-video treatment.  This version of Successful retains Noah "40" Shebib's unique, aquatic-sounding beat but omits Weezy's verse, and pushes Drake's middle bars to the end to make way for Trey's brand new sung verse. Already at #75 on the Billboard Hot 100, there's no reason to doubt that this track will become a mainstream smash. For more pop-appealing jams, grab a copy of Ready when it hits record shops and online retailers September 1st.
